The human being has a areal presence in the world. Not just a functional presence. Without man the world doesn't stand for anything.

He was given a duty and a mission, that puts him in charge of the hold world. This is the meaning of essence.

The vessel holds the light and says, 'the light that I am holding is more important than I!' The vessel is giving priority to the light and gives it free reign...


the vessels are suited to the light. They give the light priority over themselves. In this way they are suited to the light and fit to receive it.

Something of significance to which the world is totally oblivious: 'there is true life; true sensitivity; and true submission, not based on personal gain'. In a world perspective all centers around the limited entity – the ego – and this is not true. We have a soul that recognizes truth. Godly truth.

The essence of the creation is rooted in light. And the light is sourced in Essence. The light is the origin of creation.

The vessel and the light unite. The light is dressed in the vessel. The light and vessel are worlds apart.

The dressing up in the vessels allows for the light to be revealed...!

The light does not lose its primary quality.

Although contained in the vessel, yet the light is allowed to function as light.

Life is embedded in a body. Life and body are completely different. And yet the life is so dressed into the body that it is completely contained in the body.


Yet at the same time the body has life. The body lives. It is an anomaly. That is to say the life is revealed as life, yet within the body.


The soul can only be revealed in a human body (it can be sent into exile in the body of an animal, but not be enclothed and express itself there).

The light shines through the body. The eye is a clear channel for the faculty of sight. It is nullified to the spirit that animates it.

In the exile of Egypt they made us do soul destroying work... “dig this ditch! Faster! Okay. Done? Now fill it back up! Fill that ditch!” and this way the spirit disengages and won't move the arm. But when the work has a soul purpose the body functions differently...

Due to the dressing of light in vessel, there can be activity that actually functions on the vessel level. The light is driving the activity, but has completely unified with the vessel.


This enclothement is in a manner of revelation – that is to say that the light comes to full expression in the vessels – not that the vessel traps that light and blocks its brightness...

This is because the vessels are nullified to the lights...

And this is not to say that the lights overwhelm the vessels...! If that was the case nothing would have been accomplished by the enclothement.

The vessels, due to their humility are fit to receive the lights.

We are elaborating on the relationship between light and vessel (ohr ve keili).

This is not an inadvertent type of relationship. The light has the reflection of essence, but on the functional level, creation cannot come from light which is too Godly. The vessel has to contain the light and bring it down to consciousness, for there to be creation. The light has the intent of being enclothed and thus a perfect union is formed. The vessel did not trap the light.


We see objects and the reality of the world. This is not due to the power of sight. It is not because we see it. It is because it is being shown to us. The reality itself wants us to see Him.


So if you want to ignore what you are shown, and roam about in search of what you can see, you can get lost in infinity.

The lights express themselves and are revealed by the vessel. The light is not captured, but given expression.

The vessels are nullified to the light. They do not represent themselves. Rather they are representative of the light they contain.

The letters of the Hebrew language are real, not conventional. They contain and give expression to supernal lights. They focus light and reveal more than themselves and the sound. This corresponds to, “you see not because you see, but because it is being shown to you. “

We are saying the lights are dressed into vessels intentionally. There is a perfect unity between. Light and the vessels are unified.

Essence is the only one who can bring something into being from non-being. This is done by the light. The light reveals what essence is, and this is why essence has the ability to create.

But from the essence itself (in contrast to its light) it is impossible for there to be the formation of a 'something' with defined identity.

The light is nullified to its source. It provides no dichotomy. The worlds have no presence whatsoever and are completely null from the perspective of He that creates them. That is to say that from the perspective of His name there cannot be a separate 'something'.


In the world there is gravity. Things fall towards the earth. It appears as if the earth has a power to attract... But the gravity is actually about God – it is a statement that he wants a dwelling place in the lower world, and this is why everything tends down.


Gravity is not due to the self identify of the objects in the world, but due to their nullification to their Creator that things fall down... it is an expression of His goal and will...

A lower name of God (shem Elokim) allows for the presence of objects and His mastery of them...

Lights and vessels form a perfect union. They are not 2 unrelated things just somehow pushed together. They find a commonality and the light is dressed in the vessel.

The deeper reason for the union is not just the commonality, but due to the nature of the lights. They inherently have a mission, and they want to come to the place where they can fulfull their mission – they are ohrot pnimi'im – innner lights.

The lights are interested to relate to the vessel.

Think of water in a cup. Water in a lake is just there, without an identified function.

When you put water into a cup, from which a man can drink, then the water has come into a different world...


Water has the mission of slaking a man's thirst in a human manner, and this is revealed in the water by the vessel.

The lake has to be a lake, and the man has to be human and there has to be a bridge – the cup/vessel is that bridge...

A human can eat in such a way that he can lose his stature... If he's “grabbing a bite” he is focused on the food and is loosing self respect... God created food and water in such a way that it should serve the human being and thus the water comes in a cup and is served to the human being in an honorable manner.

The creation is Godly and things only exist in the presence of their Source. There is no such thing as existence in the absence of Him. The Godly presence is concealed and hidden and it comes through in a functional limited manner, to the extent that it can be contained in a keli/vessel... and the vessel is a representative of this light... it does not break away... it is the same light...

Essence/etzem is very illusive in our world... we think in terms of cause and effect, but things have an essence. Think of your host for dinner – it's his presence, not what he serves that matters...!

God could have created the world in an instant, yet he took 7 days in order to put vessels in place so that we can relate to and experience creation. He wants us to be partners with Him. This is why he made the world in this way. “Partner up with Me!” he says.

“In Himself” p:12-13 / 9-10

At the start of class Naftali asked a question about the section just before the summary on page 12. He said it sounds like the explanation is circular.

Chochmah/wisdom relates to pure truth, yet it is capable of interfacing with physicality and seeing the true presence... the eye is a vessel of the faculty of sight. And the faculty of sight becomes like the essence of the eye.


Above we say the faculties are affected by being in their vessels/receptacles. By means of being in vessels, the higher light is able to create worlds...

Godly light is not a novelty – it is the primary reality. It is fundamental.

And when we say it creates from 'nothing to something', this means that creation sensed a moment where it is not and a moment when it yes exists. And in the Godly light there is no binary factor of 'yes and no', but in the vessels there is this sense of 'no and yes'...

Sight is such a bright and total reality. And yet in sight it can relate to physicality. You can see and not see. You have a perspective and you can close your eyes. It is effortless, but it is an active faculty.

And this is how things get a physical presence, because the spiritual level is beyond 'yes and no'.

The light reflects the luminary.

The human being relates to the entire reality.

Something from nothing is exlusively in the purview of Essence. He makes 100% novelty, without any prior basis.

Essence/atzmus is not at all being dependent on something existing prior to His creation of something.

Only He is capable of this. His existence has no other source than Himself.

Therefore creation is from Him and it manifests itself by the light of essence, since light is from the luminary. So creation is by means of the light and not a keili/vessel.

From the light alone, existence cannot come to be. It needs to be settled in a vessel...

“360 Degree View” p:12/9

a vessel/keili is not independent of what it contains. The vessel is made to hold the light. This is like a cup and water. The cup is made to serve and disseminate water, and here in the cup the water finds its fullest expression.

The vessel of mind exists so that the soul will be experienced at the sechel/conscious level...


And the vessel of emotions, are also well suited to what they contain... and the level of sechel/mind they contain is not the essence... they receive the external reflection of the sechel...

If there is the light of mind/sechel, what is added by having a vessel/kli? What do you need a vessel for? So think of sight – think of these 2 phenomena, 1. sight is like wisdom, but unless it is dressed up in the eye, wisdom cannot see the physical world... and 2. sight is phenomenal, and from the perspective of ohr of sight, there is no limit, I can see behind me... but to be in a physical world you have to see a limited amount, a limited perspective...

So the function of the vessel is to bring the light to a different world so you can function in that world, while it remains ohr... This is light in a world. The world is seen to be real. Sight/chochma provides this perspective of reality – Godly reality.

The world is real due to its Godly element.

There is nothing more convincing than sight. Why not touch? If I see a table, the sight gives me the reality and the memory of it. If I hit my hand on it I have only personal experience or proof, but if I see it, I and the object are one...

We are saying there is a difference between the essence and the reflection of mochin/sechel/mind.


In a worldly context people say, “how do you know? Prove it?” If these questions apply then it is not the essence of mind/sechel.


The ha-arah/reflection level of mochin says, 'here's how it should be...' - it is giving instruction.

The essence of moach/mind is in the top three levels exclusively. It deals with knowledge that is beyond process – for example the knowledge that there is a First Being. These top three levels are chabad – chochmah, binah and daas...

Really these 3 top levels could be called soul/nefesh, except we call them mind/mochin... this is because these 3 upper levels (chochmah, binah and daas) are vessels/receptacles for the revelation of the light of the soul (ohr hamochin).

We have discussed that indeed mochin/sechel is manifest in lower faculties, where these limbs are not really suitable for that kind of enclothment...

Mochin/mind, even though present in a worldly environment, is essentially beyond world and the worldly element is secondary.... Sight is a spiritual experience, and the eye itself is not sensed – this is a metaphor for mind...


Mochin/mind relates directly to how things 'should be'. Emotions/midot are reactive. Mochin asks, 'what is right? What is the truth?'


With sight a whole panorama can be seen in an instant. It is above observing each mile and detail separately. It is so real, yet it is above process! The reason is that the principle of sight differs from the principle of touch, where 'your experience' tells you about the object. In sight the 'primary truth of the object and reality' is dominant. This is like seeing from the Creator's vantage point, where things don't take up any room...

If we doubted that there is a world, then sight would not show it to us. The first principle says Rambam, is to know that there is a First Being who is the foundation for all...

Life is not something we actively pursue. We breathe because He breathes into us. If we had to work at breathing, it would be torture. There is an essence of life in this world.

Chochmah sees the truth from a reality perspective. And a purpose is perceived – to bring the truth down into a physical reality of 6 dimensions...

The sechel/mind that is dressed in the lower limbs – the hands and feed is the mindful element of action.

Sechel/mind provides not just the concept, but the context and significance.


Real sechel speaks about reality and this means it will come from the top all the way to the world of action.


All final action is not reactive and the response to a circumstance. It is pro-active. It is by design. It was contained in the level of binah/understanding.

A human being's movements are never robotic. His total awareness is always present at every level.

When he walks towards a destination, he may be accompanied by a dog. They have completely different orientations. The dog is exclusively aware of the path. The human being is always aware of the full reality...

This is the sechel element manifest on the lowest level of functionality.

The human being has a presence in the world that is not a 'stranger in a strange place'. Wherever he is, he is fully oriented...

A 'good person' is beyond the act of doing good deeds to the needy – his atribute of chesed/kindness is vibrant – he sees with a good eye. Just like the hand is always on the ready, not just when action is needed. Even when the good hand is relaxing, it is for the sake of action. The element of midot/emotions is present continually. The vitality does not come to a lifeless entity.


In a living human being there is never, 'nothing going on'. He is continually observing and relating.

It is a continual awareness of the reality that the sechel/mind provides. This is the sechel providing the background for the midot/emotions.



Walking is a faculty is n the soul of man. As the faculties of the soul are dressed in the body it is a reflective of the soul, but implemented in a different way.

We are saying sechel/mind is dressed into the faculties that are below it.

If we use the faculty of movement to draw a picture, the picture is not understood by the faculty of movement – this remains sechel vision. The sense of movement is responding to the sense of the the sechel/mind.


Malchus/kingship is in its own category. It deals with external expression. I the human structure this refers to the 'foot'. The foot does not participate in where it is going, yet there is also sechel in the foot...!


Malchus/kingship is elusive. Like chochmah/wisdom sees the whole panorama in a glance... so too this element is seen in malchus.

Malchus is called the 'lower chochmah' since it is operating on a lower level...

It was explained that a similar phenomenon to that of what exists in the human being exists above.

Like a faculty is reduced to find a home and unite with its vessel/limb, so too there is a union above between lights and vessels (ohrot and keilim).


There is a great union. Like the eye is a clear channel for sight. You see what's there and you don't sense the eye itself at all. This is like chochmah where the vessel is null and unified with the light.

Mochin/mind means the pro-active element. It is not based on observation and experience. Rather you relate to the reality and say, 'okay, this has to be done'. Sechel/mind sees how it should be as opposed to how it is...
